Kogan was once a Cobb and Co change over station, boasting seven saw mills and is now the location of an interesting emu farm. Just west of Kogan, an emu farm offers visitors the chance to witness eggs being artificially incubated and the young chicks being reared between June and October. The farm is open all year round.
The Tara-Kogan Road is a picturesque drive taking you past historic places like Honey Road and the 226 Mile. You'll find the Native Bird Aviary near the Hard Country Native Nursery. The Kogan Creek Power Station opened in 2007.
Kogan was also the home of famous artist Hugh Sawry. Remnants of his home and old cheese factory can still be found.
